Event Seed Result
100 IM 1:33 1:24 1st
50 FR :32.47 :30.78 3rd
50 BK :41:59 :40.48 2nd
50 Fly 39.12 35.28 2nd
100 FR 1:10 1:08 2nd

My seed times were from the last SCM meet back in October 2008. Got ribbons and a cool goodie bag!
I came in second in the 50 FR in my final/heat, he got me by half a body length, a second or two faster. Arms need to get stronger!
I felt awkward on the back.
Fly felt great, 2 beat kicks were right on... I just didn't have enough steak to propel me faster.
Was worn out for the 100 FR, It felt like I was out there for a long time.
I couldn't find a "Finger Cot" like the one Jim use's, so I used waterproof dressing tape for my finger, its amazing how one little injured finger can cause a distraction underwater.

Well my non-taper/pathetic workouts the week before the meet was 2 workouts Monday and Tuesday, I stayed out of the pool, after injuring my finger, on Weds and Thurs. I tried to return on Friday, however some strange group of lap swimmers lead by a even stranger coach (maybe they rented the pool from another high school?) had filled all the lanes. arrg!

    Well, at least, you had some drops from your seed times. Nice drop in the 100 IM.
